I agree with Laurie that people think of goldfish as the cheap, plain, but pretty-colored fish that are associated with carnival games. I know that people do not recognize my big oranda, ranchu and ribbontail as "goldfish," and are surprised when I tell them what kind the "beautiful" fish in my tank are. They also comment on how "BIG they are," and are fascinated when I tell them about the wen, the breeding history and origins, and the other unusual goldfish varieties we hobbiests appreciate so much.
